Fashion on The Corner - Lupita Wows in Prada
That powder blue against her dark, smooth skin is nothing short of breathtaking.
She is a star. She inspires every girl of color to love the skin you’re in and to dream big.
"No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid."

But ya’ll don’t hear me though. Fashion is the clothes, style is what you do with it.
I don’t do the #wcw thing but @ajak_deng for @wmag #repost from @edward_enninful is everything. This is #art This is #fashion
For all of you that call Balmain ( ball-mon) bal -main. This is for you.
We’ve all looked at certain names like how the hell do you say that? Well Elle has you covered.
Fashion News on The Corner- Black Models, Actresses and Musicians in Fashion Ad Campaigns
It seems like fashion has turned over a new leaf. While we’re not seeing a lot of Black models on the runway and on the cover of glossies, they are popping up for new Spring/Summer 2014 ad campaigns.
It’s one small step for the Black model and one giant leap for the fashion industry, who seem to omit models of color without thinking twice. While we see the little sprinkles of the token Black girls (Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn) at certain shows, the majority of shows don’t have a model of color at all. And the shows that include more than one are covered in the media, as if they are a spectacle, hence the Rick Owens show this past September. (Which I thought was awesome by the way)
Seeing a model of color on a magazine other than Ebony or Essence, seems like Christmas all over again. The excitement is like that of a kid waking up to a shiny new bike with a bell. We can now look forward to Zoe Saldana on the cover of Lucky mag a month after Kerry Washington. We can also look forward to Lupita and Oprah on the cover of the February issues of W mag.
I’m elated that the fashion industry is opening up their minds to the fact that we can also sell merchandise and we are not just a strong buying force. I hope this is not a trend.
How do you guys feel about the new ad campaigns?

Fashion on The Corner - Moschino X Jeremy Scott
So avant-garde designer Jeremy Scott was made creative director of Moschino in October of 2013.
If you thought the cluth was hot, check out the tote. I love this because it’s so innovative. He clearly thinks way outside the box and he does not apologize for it. Its either you like it or don’t and I likey.
Fashion on The Corner- Moschino Statement Bag by Jeremy Scott
This is the cutest thing I have seen since the leggo Chanel clutch. All you need is a pair of jeans, a tank, and some sandals. It adds a pop to an understated look.
Def a wishlist item. Does Santa work in January? I want this.
Liya still looks young and beautiful. Ageless beauty.
